Attention site users! On December 31, 2020, the company whose platform and hosting service we have used to build this site will discontinue their service. That means NO MORE SITE unless immediate action is taken. The ultimate goal will be to have the site rebuilt in another platform. In the interim, we plan to transfer this site to a "static" page where all the information will still be available but we will be unable to administrate the site. The ultimate goal will cost tens of thousands of dollars in professional costs. The immediate "static" solution will still cost several thousand. We are on retirement/SS income and do not have the personal resources to build this site again. To keep this site going, we may have to monetize it in some way such as required membership or allow advertising and you know how annoying that can be. So, if you have survived Covid-19 and still have steady income, please consider a donation in any amount now. For past contributors, thank you so much for doing so!
Note: Interesting history on this one. As best as we can tell, this peak in our First Edition Garrett & Martin, ninth printing, was ranked #285 with an elevation of 13,460 ft. In the Third Edition used for this site, it was ranked #277 with an elevation of 13,463 ft. LoJ has kept an interpolated elevation of 13,460 ft. and ranked it at #281. We're not sure how G & M came up with the 13,463 elev.
A fairly remote, easy, Class 2 summit in the heart of the central Sawatch that requires 4WD for either of two possible approaches unless you want to hike extra miles. Our route includes this summit with several other summits located around Lincoln Creek on the west side of Independence Pass.
